Mother's Kitchen Melbourne

Mother’s Kitchen in Melbourne began in November 2011.

Since October 2016 we have joined the Darebin Community Canteen in Preston and serve lunch every last Saturday of the month. The Darebin Community Canteen is a collaboration between the Anglican Parish of Jika Jika, Secondbite, the Darebin Council and Mother’s Kitchen.  It was established to address food insecurity in the Darebin area and relies on the contribution of volunteers to run. As well as a free nutritious lunch, a variety of fresh produce is provided for people to take home after lunch.

Where: Darebin Community Canteen, Anglican Parish of Jika Jika, Cnr High Street and Murray Road, Preston (google map)
When: Last Saturday each month – lunchtime.

How it is run?

Volunteers are involved  in preparing, cooking, serving and cleaning. The meal plan is usually discussed through email one week before the serving day. We are always looking for more volunteers.

How do I volunteer?

To offer your help with serving, cooking a meal, or to make further enquiries, please email

How else can I help?

Should you wish to support this worthwhile service but cannot volunteer in a physical sense, then please do not hesitate to make a donation online. These funds are used to cover the cost of ingredients and incidental expenses in running the program.
